About this event

Lean and Six Sigma complement each other. Lean is popular for its methodical approach to streamlining both manufacture and service processes by eliminating waste and adding value to business activities. Six Sigma is a disciplined, data-driven approach and methodology for eliminating defects and variation – from manufacturing to transactional.
 
Fundamentally, it is a concept that combines lean philosophies and Six Sigma methods to eliminate waste of physical resources, time, effort and talent, whilst improving the quality in production and organizational outputs.
 
The key topics that we will discuss are:
  • Why Lean Six Sigma?
  • What is Lean Six Sigma? 
  • Who uses Lean Six Sigma?
  • Key principles of Lean
  • Brief overview of Six Sigma - DMAIC
  • An experience of your practical application of LSS

Additional information

Speaker: Michel Doppert, Director of the Lean Six Sigma Company UK & Ireland
Michel started his journey on continuous improvement more than 30 years ago, as a Quality Inspector and Manager for a major European Airline. He learnt many Lean tools and Techniques, although the word Lean was then known of as the common definition of the application of a mind-set and tools.
Michel first encountered Six Sigma in 1996 when he joined General Electric. He says ‘After a brief culture shock, I loved the structure and the data based decision making now added to continuous improvement activities that Six Sigma provided. I was certified as a Master Black Belt by GE and went on to build a Continuous Improvement infrastructure as a certified Quality Leader. After these roles, I was chosen for senior leadership positions in several GE businesses. In 2006, I became an entrepreneur. Now I really understood what value Lean Six Sigma can bring to companies and organizations, focusing on continuously adapting to new developments and looking to continuously getting better at what we do, based on our ever changing customer requirements.’
Michel is passionate in sharing his knowledge and experiences through lecturing on various Lean Six Sigma Belt courses and company consultations.
